The dress I made for my niece
The dress I made for my niece

I came to America in August of the year 2021. I landed in New York. I felt excited. I was happy that my whole family was with me. My uncle lives here with the whole family. I was happy. My job is making dresses .This is my country's famous clothes. This item is made from a single piece of thread and glass beads. There was a dressmaking competition in Afghanistan and the children were judged in two days. It takes a woman a week to make a dress. Afghans wear this dress at weddings, Eid, and new year celebrations. This garment is also hand made and machine made. I like these clothes.
